Pros: Sharpness, excellent construction, compact, very versatile, inexpensive.

Cons: Smooth focus ring.

Opinion: I state that I possess the first version of the lens for Sony, but I also had the second on Samsung NX. In terms of quality absolutely no difference, the difference is in weight, the second version has one more lens and the rear element is wider, probably better distributes the light on the sensor. Excellent lens If you like the fish eye optics. F 2.8 is a decent opening also for indoor or night-scapes. Obviously, given the desired distortion, do not expect that the sharpness at the edges is the same as the center, however it is very sharp the lens. Beautiful lens solid and durable, to a friend of mine has fallen and, never seen until now, is not broken!!! It still works great, Baloditivo! Photo and video quality: 8.5. Build Quality: 9.5. Focal length of 8mm and goodbye to autofocus, piglia almost everything in focus, only with subjects closer than 1.5 meters you have to do some attention. If you do not like this type of optics do not take it, if you have never tried it, buy it and you will not regret it, if ever you can resell at a great price given the fact that it is not very second hand.

Pros: Excellent quality, very robust, total focus.

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: It is a great quality lens that continually surprises you. The material is great and the focus is no problem. It is bright though very small and a bit difficult to use. The price, although it is convenient, is still not low. It is almost unobvable as used. Excellent yield at all focal lengths, including 2.8.

Pros: Cost, very compact and sturdy, bright and large angle of field.

Cons: No view quality/price.

Opinion: I have this lens for a few months now, I never wanted to hear about the optical fish, well I had to reconsider... this little Samyang stunned me, you get great photographs with an impressive angle of field, the quality Image is very good and is also very bright, is not excluded a test even at night, I'm really happy, the distortion on the ML is visible in real time both in the viewfinder and in the display, this helps a lot in the process of shooting, excellent really and happy to have it buys is the only Samyang optics of my kit currently in use on my Fujifilm T-20 and H-1 ML.

Pros: Affordable cost, sharpness, brightness and good color rendering.

Cons: For the quality / price ratio I would say no, but if we really want to find something, the maf is not very fluid.

Opinion: Taken a few days ago for my xt2 to do something fun and out of the usual patterns, I'm finding myself very well. Like all the particular objectives of this kind, it should be known to use. Take into account the lines, perspectives and type of photo you want to do, also because post does not adjust much at these extremes. Recommended and always kept in the bag for those, like me, has the whim of a "special research" in the shots.

Pros: Compact, solid, pretty bright, fun, corner, hyperfocal

Cons: It is used sparingly, maf long ring

Opinion: Purchased as a challenge to mount it on the x-t10, it's a little jewel that sometimes saves the day when it's not inspired. Keep it behind, though we probably will not use it, because it's really minute and it's everywhere. To use for night photos, in other fields it is used with criterion because it risks becoming stuccoable. I find it pleasant especially for close-up sports photography because of a lot of dynamism. Be careful not to photograph your fingers and feet, the field of corn is crazy .. .
